In which a stray sandwich threatens to derail the streak

A pocket of almost subtropical rainforest in a firmly temperate region of Australia's South Coast.

Without going into detail, a misadventure with a bad turkey sandwich almost led to me missing today’s post. And we can’t have that, can we?

Instead, I’ll leave you with a jaw-dropping video podcast from Tahiti’s local bodyboarders. What a stunning place, with some of the most beautiful and dangerous waves in the world.

That's not to say I think Tahiti is better than Australia. It's not. Congo in winter.

  1. You realise that with a title like that no-one cares about these vids/images, and just wants to know about this curious turkey sandwich mishap. ;)

    Details! Was it fatal..?

    • Oh, you want detail? OK. At approximately 12:30pm, I ingested a turkey and bacon sandwich and latte from the Science Museum cafe. The coffee tasted a bit funny but I thought, oh well. By about 3pm I was feeling queasy. At 4pm everyone else was leaving. I said bye to them, then went and chundered in the loo. Feeling better, I tidied up my things, answered a few emails, and switched off the various electrical appliances in the gallery. Around 5pm I left work, starting to feel sick again. I then had to wait 15 minutes for a bus, during which time I got very cold, because my body had apparently given up on thermoregulation. Upon finally arriving home, I was promptly sick again. I then retreated to bed at around 6:20pm, and had a temperature and several more bouts of bodily functions. By about midnight it was mostly over, and I was left very tired, with popped blood vessels around my eyes and sore abs. I then slept soundly until 9, woke up, answered some emails, and went back to bed for most of the day.

      There you go, full story.

    Unfortunately, Mr. Hedgehog, our good friend died. He is now posthumously blogging. Because nothing can stop him.

    Is there a moral to this story?
